THE CIRCLE 




1935 



PUBLISHED BY THE SENIOR ( LASS 

ABBOT ACADEMY 

AN DOVER, MASSACHUSETTS 



To Miss Carpenter 

Remembering, as rhe parting hour nears, 

The thousand little things you've said and done 

Unconsciously to ease and smooth these vears, 

Spontaneous, but remembered every one, 

W e long with speaking thoughts but perverse tongue 

To thank you for them and for everv dav; 

But most deserved praise is never sung, 

And everv full heart finds no word to saw 

We will remember how vou smiled at us 

On meeting, all vour comforting way, 

Your gracious manner and — because we must — 

That lock of hair that alwavs went astray. 

For proof we leave vou — more than hearts alone — 
This Book, dear Carpie, for your verv own.

Class Song 



Here are some girls, who are real Abbor girls, 
Who will strive for the school thev adore. 
Never desponding, we're ever resolving 
That up to the heights we will soar. 
Shoulder to shoulder, and bolder and bolder, 
We sing as we swing on our way; 
So, we know the white and blue 
Will always thrill our hearts, 
On, we're marching on — 
We are the class of '35-

PRISCILLA EMILY ABBOT 
"Pri" 

1817 Washtenaw Ave., Ann Arbor, Mich. 
Michigan University Tivo Years 

Brilliant playing in hockey, good looks, enviable 
wardrobe, to say nothing of such things as good- 
nature, and general likability! Divested of these, 
we find Pri is still intangible. Perhaps that's a 
characteristic of Michigan. Anyway, we want 
some more from the same place.

DORIS WOODING ANDERSON 

"Bossy" 

94 Poor Street, Andover, Mass. 

Two Years 

There is an expression, " Tis nice to be natural 
when one is naturally nice." Example — a girl 
named Doris who bounces into your pathway with 
a loud "Hi," and a laugh that sort of bubbles 
forth from a smile between two dimples. The 
"Cheerful Cherub" has never been more truly 
personified.

MARY FLORENCE BARLOW 

"Mickey" 

855 Salem Ave., Elizabeth, N. J. 

Katharine Gibbs Two Years 

It is a mystery to us why Mickey should at anv time 
he subject to spells of melancholia, when she is our 
class smoothie, one of our star hockey players, and, 
when not on the hockey field, looks just like a 
Vogue fashion plate. Is it because someone does not 
appreciate those lovely eyes, Mickey?

PHYLLIS BRADFORD BROWN 

"Phil" 
22 Mountain Ave., Lewiston, Maine 

Two Years 

This gal from Lewiston, Maine we want you to 
know is well worth looking at twice or perchance 
three times. Imagine fly away blonde hair, black 
eyebrows, blue eves, and a cute profile. May we 
also mention that she has a gorgeous figure and a 
sunny personality. And there must be something 
about Griffin captains that makes the lads flock 
round, even though they never get their fill.

CATHLEEN BURNS 

"Katy, Kate" 

267 Main Street, Andover, Mass. 

Smith Four Years 

She can draw, she can paint, she can write. She's 
got dimples and a devilish expression; she makes 
bad puns and also the Honor Roll. You raav have 
heard her operatic soprano making Studv Hall re- 
sound as from a steam whistle. Aha! that gave it 
away! Yes, it's Kate, and we're betting here and 
now that Katv comes out on top.

' HELEN EMERSON CARY 
Otaru, Hokkaido, Japan 
Oberlni Three Years 

Helen's consuming passion seems to be Art. We 
confidentlv anticipate the appearance of a criticism 
of the late Italian Renaissance in a few more vears, 
but in the meantime we enjoy her poetic abilitv as 
revealed in Courant. We lament her woeful mutila- 
tion of the King's English, but there seems to be no 
cure. - 

\\ hen more outlandish innovations are produced, 
Helen will produce them — vaw-vole!

"Bur why do vou call her Tubh\ J 

"Oh, ir all goes hack ro long ago — you know how

For Tubbv is no longer living up to her name and 

never will again if she has her sav about it. The 

Beedra of the present suits us perfectly with her 

well-known grin for everybody, her unchanging 

good humor, and that laugh, — or should we say 

explosion!

Katharine Gibbs Two Years 

"Coop" to some may suggest chickens or cars, but 
to us it means a combination of trips to Bermuda, 
smooth clothes, and special delivery proposals. 
With Coop in the held let all aspiring humorists 
retire in favor of our champion story teller. Here's 

luck to the getter, and we know she'll 

male & 

continue to get them.

CLAIRE ESTELLE CREGG 

506 Prospect Street, Methuen, Mass. 

Com el I Two Years 

"Oh, dear, I just know I flunked that Algebra 
test!" And Claire, giving us all a gloomv look, 
collapses feebly on the couch of the senior parlor. 
All this, my friends, makes us extremelv annoved, 
because Claire is very rarely known to be defeated 
in a mathematical boxing bout, or, we might add, 
in anything else she happens to go after. And put- 
ting two and two together (apropos of algebra) we 
wager right now that without benefit of anv or all 
of those scrumptious cars, Claire of the golden head 
is going to get somewhere.

ANN CRAWFORD CUTLER 
"Annie" "The Shining Light" 
Abbot Street, Andover, Mass. 



Vassar 



Five Years 



If vou hear a shriek of laughter anvwhere around, 
it's probablv the result of one of Annie's witty 
remarks (not so the puns). If vou see someone being 
enthusiasticallv patted on the back, she's probablv 
just gotten on the honor roll with a 99 average, or 
starred in a play or written a swell story for Courant. 
All violent discussions, and libelous nicknames are 
directlv traceable to the same source. And it's also 
a known fact that she's universallv beloved.

JANE GOODWIN DAWES 

47 Mt. Vernon Street, Cambridge, Mass. 

Wellesley Four Years 

For one small person, Jane certainly is a pillar of 
strength. But we shouldn't be so literal. Jane is the 
ideal sort to have backing a class for four years in 
more ways than one. Her playing at recitals, her 
prompt attendance at hockey and fun at Fidelio can 
hardly be easily forgotten. A gifted raconteuse, she 
has beguiled us with many tales of her near and 
dear. 

By the way. Jane, when are we going to meet your 
brother?

hair, an intriguing wrinkle of the nose which ac- 
companies a smile, and a su-mooth dancer? How

We have wondered for a long time why Phil doesn't 
provide herself with some Chinese nail-protectors, 
for no Mandarin of any dynasty could have boasted 

J J . 

such long and tapering appendages. In fact, she 
seems to stress the "unusual" motif — noticeable 
at times in French. ("For French of Parys was to 
here unknowe.") And we mustn't forget that Phil 
is likewise an accomplished dancer and a brilliant 
hockey plaver to boot. What will the Griffin for- 
ward line do without her next year? We dread to 
think.

For calm, impervious dignity, our "duchess" up-

don't be misled; there are delightful quirks of 
originality beneath that imposing braid. And music! 
It will be no surprise to us to hear that Zette is 
giving concerts all over the world about six years 
from now. Her singing has charmed us in the few 
recitals when we have been privileged to hear it 
and we predict a successful future in the years to 
come.

the verse doesn't tell you about Fran is the regu-

Welles ley Two Years 

"Pat, let's look at vour profile." 
"Oh, stop it, please!" 

We can't understand it, she's got the cutest profile, 
but she won't let us look at it. Cruel woman! Still, 
the full face isn't so bad either, and vou should see 
her hold forth in "Curfew Shall NotRingTonight!" 
Even if vou've just flunked vour algebra, she'll 
make you laugh. It's a great art being a cheerer- 
upper, and she's certainly got it down pat. Dignities 
of state (class president you know) weigh lightlv 
on Pat's capable shoulders, and we're laving our 
bets on the best Senior President that ever was or 
will be.

1 LUCIA ELMORE NUNEZ 

Bancroft Road, Andover, Mass. 

Wellesley Two Years 

Favorite recipes — take a cup of good humor, a 
tablespoon of excellent brains, a dash of whimsi- 
cality, a sprinkling of odd adjectives pronounced 
with great gusto, flavor well with perfectlv awful 
puns, and what have you? You've guessed it! It's 
Lucia! a concoction guaranteed to please every- 
body, and when we sav evervbodv, we mean 
everybody.

CLAIRE RUTH OPPENHEIM 
81 Sunray Street, Lawrence, Mass. 

Two Years 



Claire is one of those Lawrence day scholars whom 
we get to know through the medium of the senior 
parlor. Who will ever forget those grins of hysteri- 
cal joy on Claire's face at the latest sally of Dossy, 
her aide-de-camp? Or that original(??) dance step, 
executed in the senior parlor to the slight detriment 
of floor and carpet 3 Claire also has a sly, oh most sly 
sense of humor all her own, that various of us who 
are on the "inside" have come to appreciate.

167 Main Street, Andover, Mass. 

Four Years 

A brief glimpse of twinkling eyes, peering out from 
under a very Frenchy bang, a familiar, cheery "Hi, 
dear!", and Jean from good ol' Canada is in our 
midst. We're certainly going to miss Jean next year, 
but the question is will Jean miss us? For you really 
can't blame us for wondering, considering the 
alarminglv regular arrival of certain letters, just 
how soon it will be, before she goes back to Canada 
for good.

Who can probe the mysteries of those talks about 
the "Crystal Ballroom" and the "Casa Loraa 
Orchestra," when Ruth and the gang get their 
heads together? But even if, mv friends, such se- 
crets are not for us, it would not require the powers 
of a Sherlock Holmes to realize that blond curls, 
lovely coloring, and a bubbling laugh are the stuff 
that popularity is made of. even when not seasoned, 
as thev are in Ruthie's case, by a liberal sprinkling 
of intelligence.

One doesn't usually associate brains with big blue

number one. To wit, she designs her own clothes, is 
a whiz at phvsics, and can certainly convince the 
male sex of the value of these attractions. And dare 
we mention those evening lullabies to that cotton

ALICE BEST ROBINSON 
30 Chedell Place, Auburn, New York 
Vassar Three Years 

Alice is one of those people with a decided taste for 
things literary- Some of us perhaps can think back 
several vears to the time when Alice first came to 
Abbot, and used to hold "colloquia" in her room 
over crackers, peanut-butter, and Beau Geste. We 
also have great admiration for Alice's cleverness at 
the piano, and we would rather hear her play a 
Brahms waltz than almost anvbodv we know.

DORIS BARBARA SCHWARTZ 

"Dossy" 
118 Franklin Street, Lawrence, Mass. 
Smith Two Years 

Dossv, our class bluffer! We ask you if vou remember 
Dossy, slumbering in the senior parlor, franticallv 
embracing three or more pillows, or that famous 
kick of disapproval when the world was treating her 
pretty shabbily? We all look upon Intervale as the 
great exposition of Dossy's quaint humor and 
musical ability, just in case you didn't happen to 
know that she plays everything from Beethoven's 
Moonlight Sonata to Gershwin's Rhapsody in 
Blue. Yes, indeed we venture to say that in this 
respect Dossy will continue to make a "play" for 
attention.

KATHARINE SCUDDER 
"Scud" 

133 West Ninth Street, Claremont, Calif. 
Vassar Three Years 

We all like to be famous for one thing, but how 
would you like to be famous for several? We know 
someone who is — take a bow, Scud! She's noted for 
the queerest mixture of things, such as athletics 
(some javelin thrower), brains (no comment nec- 
essary), obstinacy (just try and argue with her), 
and plenty of pestiferousness (watch your hat). 
We don't want to mention too many things, but 
could you ever forget that laugh?

MARGIT THONY 
166 High Street, Winchendon, Mass. 

Three Years 

If there was ever an over-worked adjective it's 
individual, but when we come to Margit we just 
have to use it. She has the most delightful whimsi- 
cality, and a Puckish sense of humor that surprises 
you at every turn. No dull moments with Margit! 
She has a way, too, of making people feel like 
potential geniuses, which is reallv one of the finer 
arts of life. Of course we're nor the onlv people who 
realize all this, and we fear that the competition is 
going to be a bit hard for the poor "Lion Tamer." 
How about it, Margit?

"Cey-seal, this is andante cantabile, not allegro

and collected expression we all envy. But our good- 
looking head of Stu G. doesn't alwavs seem so 
angelic. You can see a diabolical twinkle in her 
eye whenever there's a good joke coming, and 
when it 'the twinkle) reaches her mouth — well,

joyable sessions, just on the strength of that grin.

The Supreme Court Sits 

It was upon a Thursday night 
The faculty were meeting, 
And in the rooms aboye their heads 
Full fifty hearts were beating. 

For this, it happened, was the night 
The faculty'd decided 
To talk of seniors and their ways 
And what girls should be chided. 

It was Miss Bailey who arrived 
To ope the judgment hall. 
And after her each teacher came, 
Assembling one and all. 

Miss Comegys came loping in, 
And Madame in her booties, 
Miss B. with l' Illustration, 
And Duncie from her duties. 



Miss Bean was there with H. Belloc's 
Life of King Charlie One. 
Miss Grimes and good Miss Carpenter, 
Her daily dozen done. 



Then came the Misses Chickering 
From Van der Stucken's lecture, 
And all wore faces graye and sad, 
As you can well conjecture. 

"I think that alphabetically 
We'll bring up each girl's case. 
You all agree?" Miss Bailey said, 
And glanced at every face. 

"Miss Abbot is the foremost then. 
W hat are her misdemeanors? 
Now speak up every teacher plea c e 
W ho in some class has seen her." 



Most every one swore Pri was fine, 
And there was small contention. 
But Chickie shook her winged hat, 
"She doesn't pay attention!" 



36 



"This must be fixed," Miss Bailey cried, 
Bur passed on to another. 
And Mick and Dossy Anderson 
Were found to be no bother. 



The same was true of Phyllis Brown, 
\\ ho shone in mathematics, 
And stood the foremost of the group 
Of Algebra fanatics. 

"And what of Katie Burns?" was asked, 
And up spoke good Miss Baker. 
"She asks so many questions that 
Sometimes I'd like to shake her." 



"Well Helen Cary is the next." 
Miss Baker beamed her pleasure. 
"Her German accent is a joy 
I cannot hope to measure!" 

When Tubbv C. and good ol' Coop 
And Claire had all had praise, 
"Now what," Miss Bailey said, "of Ann? 
Let's hear what each one savs." 



Then Chickie smirked, Miss Baker beamed, 
Miss Comegys grinned her pleasure, 
And all agreed with one accord 
That Annie was a treasure. 



"And what of Jane?" Miss Bailey cried. 
Miss Baker took the floor. 
"If she would learn Tl est' and 'C'est,' 
I'd ask for nothing more." 

Of 'Laine and Jerry, Sue and Bun 
They spoke with approbation, 
But fought on whom El would perform 
Her first great operation. 

Next Lizzie K. and Frannie Mac 
And Doris More and Pat 
Were warmly praised by everyone, 
And that was all of that. 

"But Lucia," Chickie said, "has used 
Such great big words just lately, 
I find to my embarrassment 
My Webster helps me greatly." 

37 



Claire Oppenheim and Jean and Ruth 
Were voted swell dav scholars, 
And everybody spoke with awe 
Of Ellen's many callers. 

They all agreed that Alice's love 
Of music was just sweet, 
And Dossv's everlasting doze 
Was certainly a feat. 

Then Scudder's laugh was criticized, 
And Shirley's niceness praised, 
But, when our Margit was brought up, 
The very roof was raised. 

"She drew us all," they wailed aloud, 
"In rompers childishly, 
And put us in the class book thus, 
Alas for dignity!" 

They all praised Towse's sportmanship, 
And couldn't help but feel 
It would be swell to spend their lives 
In Araby with Cile. 

And, when at last the Court broke up, 
'Twas voted that they would 
Give every girl her ring, and thus 
Get rid of her for good.

Ring Song 

In holding you, my ring, I see 
Two circles in my heart. 
In both these Abbot circles here 
I know I have a part. 

The one is smooth, a dappled lawn. 
The buildings stand around— 
White-pillared Abbot, long McKeen, 
And Draper, ivy-gowned. 

The other circle, larger still, 

Is one of friends so dear, 

Who, warm and true, will closer grow 

With every passing year. 



Lucia Nunez 



Tree Song 

Poets sing of loveliness, 
Forests greenly cool, 
Why has vet no poet come 
Abbot to extol? 

Charm of sylvan grove have we, 
Lofty aisles of pine. 
Sun-enchanted meadows ours, 
Glad hearts to enshrine. 

Where our hearts must e'er remain 
We will plant our tree. 
Ever thoughts of it will wake 
Tender memorv. 

Ann Cutler

Intervale 

CAVIAR TO THE GENERAL 

But look, the morn, in russet flannels clad, 

Peeps out the side of yonder Johnny door. 

Wake we our neighbors up; but by my advice 

Let us impart what we have seen tonight 

To no one. But for this, I could a tale 

Unfold, whose slightest word would freeze thv young 

Blood. For sleeping in mine comfy bed, 

Mv custom always in the night, upon 

Mv slumbrous hour mv roommate stole, 

With juice of cursed ice within a glass, 

And in the gapings of my night-shirt poured 

This leperous distilment. Something too much 

Of this! Let us to breakfast. Thrift, thrift, 

Horatio, is forgotten, since steak and fried 

Pancakes do warmly furnish forth 

The breakfast table. And later, "Oh, 

That this too, too solid flesh would melt, 

Thaw, and resolve itself into the perfect 

Figure." Then under this most excellent 

Canopy, the air, look vou, this brave o'erhanging 

Firmament we shall ski. We pause upon 

Yon sterile promontorv and ponder. 

"To ski or not to ski; that is the question. 

Whether 'tis nobler in a snowdrift to suffer 

The chills and drippings of outrageous icicles, 

Or to take weight upon our ski-poles 

And m arising break them. Ah! this is 

The very ecstasv of love of skiing, 

Whose violent properties upsets itself 

And us, and leads the legs to desperate 



46 



Undertakings. Oh, my prophetic soul! 

I'm down again!'' The air bites shrewdly. It 

Is a nipping and an eager air. What hour now? 

I think it lacks of twelve. Indeed it now 

Draws nigh the season wherein the stomach 

Is wont to warble unmelodiouslv. 

Less art, more matter! . . . After dinner soliloquy: 

"What is man (or Abbot girl for that matter) 

That his chief good and market of his time 

Be but to sleep and feed? A beast, no more! 

Now whether it be natural otiosity or some 

Craven scruple of thinking too precisely 

On the two-mile walk to North Conway, 

A thought which quartered hath but one part 

Healthv exercise and three parts aching muscles, 

I know not. Shall we expose what is mortal 

And unsure to all that skates, and ice, and 

Other perils dare, even for a Viennese Waltz?" 

And still we go. (Fell down her snowy trophies 

And herself onto the heartless ice.) The night 

Draws on apace. My neighbors' spirit in arms, 

I doubt some foul play. There's beds awry, 

And my two school-fellows, whom I will trust 

As adders fanged, thev wear suspicious mien. 

Let it work, for 'tis sport to have 

The piebedmaker hoist with his own petar. 

An't shall go hard, but I will delve one yard 

Below their blankets and there deposit 

Midst the snowy sheets an icy lump, that 

Swift as quicksilver it courses through the natural 

Gates and alleys of the sheet. Pandemonium reigns, 

And in its midst, the clock then beating one, 

"Rest, rest, perturbed spirits!" quoth Miss Bailev. 

The rest is silence.

Intervale Song 

(Tune: A Little Bit of Heaven) 

Sure a little bit of heaven 

Fell from out the sky one day, 

And it nestled in New Hampshire 

Not so many miles away; 

And when the angels found it 

Sure it looked so sweet and fair, 

They said, "Suppose we leave it, 

For it looks so peaceful there.'' 

So thev sprinkled it with sunshine 

Just to make the pine trees grow, 

They're the finest ones that can be found 

No matter where you go. 

And they placed the mountains round it 

Just to keep away the gale, 

And when thev had it finished, 

Sure thev called it Intervale.

Intervale Songs 

Intervale where everyone is gay, 
Lots of fun throughout the live-long day, 
Skiing, skating, sleighs, toboggans, too, 
Lots of food to eat, lots of things to do, 
We broke a trail up over Mount Surprise, 
We've had our share of heavy exercise, 
We'll always cherish happy memories 
Of dear old Intervale. 



(Tune: Walking in a Winter Wonderland) 

We have skied, we have skated, 
We've acquired lots of muscle, 
We're spotted black and blue, 
But we're here to say to you 
Just wait until you get to Intervale. 

We bumped into the trees upon the mountains, 
We fell into the snow drifts down below, 
We froze our feet and then we froze our noses, 
But still we sav to you we're fond of snow. 

Repeat Chorus: 

We have skied, we have skated . . .

The Senior Middle Class Song 

Onward still and upward 
Thirtv-six will aim, 
Striving for the highest 
Led bv Abbot's name. 
Higher ever higher 
Will our banners rise, 
Till our crimson colors 
Mount up to the skies, 
And we've kept the standards 
Abbot glorifies.

Parting Hymn 

Father, I know that all mv life 

Is portioned out for me; 
The changes that are sure to come 

: I do not fear to see; : 
But I ask Thee for a present mind 

Intent on pleasing Thee. 

I ask Thee for a thoughtful love 

Through constant watching wise, 

To meet the glad with joyful smiles, 

: And to wipe the weeping eves; : 

And a heart at leisure from itself. 
To soothe and svmpathize. 

Wherever in the world I am. 

In whatsoe'er estate, 
I have a fellowship of hearts 

: To keep and cultivate; : 
And a work of lowly love to do 

For the Lord on whom I wait. 

So I ask Thee for the dailv strength 

To none that ask denied, 
And a mind to blend with outward life 

: While keeping at Thy side; : 
Content to fill a little space 

If Thou be glorified.

The Senior Play 

"DEAR BRUTUS" 
By Sir James Matthew Barrie 

Everyone is probablv more or less fond of Barrie, but the witchery and charm of 
his "Dear Brutus," must surelv linger in our memories as one of the most delightful 
events of the year. The acting, the dialogue, the entire atmosphere caught and en- 
chanted us. The idea of midsummer's eve with its strange traditions and mvsterious 
happenings; the odd little man, the last of Merrie England, is irresistible. Secretly we 
should rather like to venture into the Enchanted Wood, if only to see what we Might 
Have Been.

synopsis of scenes 

Act I. Lob's House 
Act II. The Wood 
Act III. Same as Act I 



Somewhere in the north of England there is a legend that once every year on 
Midsummer Night, a strange forest appears, and that those who go into it will have, 
for a few hours, the life they might have lived, if, at some crucial time in their past, 
they had chosen the other turning instead of the one they did. 

A queer old Puck of a man who lives in this region conceives the idea of inviting 
some guests to his house at just this time of year, and seeing what happens when this 
second chance is given to them in the enchanted wood. And not only does this old 
man Lob gratify his whimsical curiosity, but those who witness the play are per- 
mitted to look on as well, and to see each character as he MIGHT HAVE BEEN, and 
then to see his return to what he reallv is.

THREE PILLS IN A BOTTLE 
By Rachel Lyman Field 

Tony in "Three Pills in a Bottle" is just the sort of charming, imaginative, old- 
fashioned child whom everyone is fond of, and we all experienced with him a real 
pleasure in meeting the souls of those everyday people. The fine acting of the entire 
cast made the fanciful but brief experience realistic for the audience.

CATHERINE PARR 

or 

Alexander s Horse 

By Maurice Baring 

From the minute the curtains drew apart to show Henry VIII, English monarch, 
posing a knife on his egg, the breakfast room was electrically charged. Rich argument 
"Alexander's horse was white — no, black!" reached a crisis when the lovely blond 
page took execution orders. How Catherine escaped we don't quite know — a splendid 
glimpse of sovereigns on high domestic seas — and lavender tights.

ROSALIND 
By J. M. Barrie 

"Rosalind" is one of those engrossing plays of mistaken identity, though it holds 
no element of mvstery for the audience. The smallness of its cast made every character 
necessarily outstanding, and the three principals rose to the occasion with excellent 
performances.

SPREADING THE NEWS 
By Lady Gregory 

Lady Gregory's "Spreading the News" proved to be a jolly Irish comedy with

Hamlet and Eggs 

A hush lav over all the class; 
No breathing stirred the air, 
And then the calm was broken by 
The creaking of a chair. 

We sat and looked with hollow eves 
Where Chickie kept her station. 
"Yes, girls," she said, "I'm sure 'twill be 
A nice examination. 

Tomorrow vou will come at five 
— The C. P. Senior Classes — 
Prepared to take an oral test, 
I hope that each one passes. 

We will recite respectivelv 

— Priscilla, pay attention — 

Upon the works we've read this vear, 

But what I need not mention." 

What awful visions filled our minds, 
And made us cringe and cower! 
For sure on "Hamlet" and the "Ag" 
We'd spent full manv an hour. 

But when the bell had tolled the hour 
When we were meant to meet, 
Both crammed and empty, bright and dumb, 
Each girl was in her seat. 

And Chickie prancing to her desk 
Could smack her lips with pleasure. 
"We'll start on 'Hamlet' first," she said, 
"He's really such a treasure! 

Now, will you tell me, Eleanor, 

Why Hamlet acted mad?" 

"Oh, ves," said Ellie, bright with pride, 

"The truth is that he had 

A common ailment of the mind, 
Cyclothvmia — the same. 
It is a form of psychosis. 
The svmptoms I can name." 

"Oh, pray don't bother," Chickie said; 
"This class is as a rule 
Conducted to teach literature; 
'Tis not a doctor's school. 



86 



But let's return to where we stopped, 
And Ann, I'm sure, can sav 
Why Hamlet jumped into the grave 
On 'Phelia's burial day." 

"I've often wondered why myself," 
Said Annie, deep in thought. 
"He might have hurt an arm or leg, 
Or got his doublet caught. 

But if he'd onlv used his head, 
I'm sure it's safe to say 
He would have used a glider, and 
Gone down an easv way." 

"You disappoint me, Ann, indeed!" 
Poor baffled Chickie cried, 
"But, Lucia, tell me how the king, 
The queen, and Hamlet died." 

But Lucia, simpering, demurred, 
And, maiden coy, replied, 
"The Andover mother's darling girl 
Knows not life's sordid side." 

So Chickie, puzzled, turned to Scud, 
And asked her pleadingly, 
But heartless Scudder onlv cried, 
"HAW! HAW! HAW! Don't ask me!" 

"Why then perhaps," said Chickie now, 
"Cathleen will try and say 
Whv Hamlet spurned Ophelia's love 
Within the hall that day." 

"I'm sure I cannot answer why," 
Said Kate contemptuously, 
"Love is a lot of rot, I think, 
And men especiallv." 

"Then, Cecile, will you tell me now, 
— And tell me quickly please — 
Where Rosencrantz and Guildenstern 
Took Hamlet overseas?" 

And Cecile, dozing there, did not 

So much as raise her head, 

But yawned and mumbled 'neath her breath, 

"Arabia," she said. 

Poor Chickie, swooning in her chair, 
Was limp with indignation, 
"This will not do at all," she said, 
"I'll ask just one more question. 

87 



"So, Doris, will vou tell me why 
Upon that fatal night 
Our Hamlet met the ghost, and got 
Himself in such a plight?" 

And Dossv, wakened from a nap, 
Spoke with a drowsv head, 
"Because he hadn't sense enough 
To be at home in bed." 

"Ker-plunk!" reechoed thu the room 
The noise of Chickie's fall. 
And Ellie rushed out hurriedly 
An ambulance to call. 

But Chickie, ere they bore her off, 
Revived enough to saw 
"What would mv friend, T. S., have said, 
Had he been here todav?"

A Forrest Strahl 

A snappy GREENE DODGE swings in at the ABBOT gate. A DARLING girl 
stands on the steps of the CHAPPELL. The Villain named Gill HAWKES his horn, 
and the imPRUDDEN girl PLUNKETT herself beside him. With the GAGE reading 
sixty, they THONYs out of the circle while Miss Bailey cries, "No MORE of that, 
NEVINS DUNCAN my DAWES again. ' ' With only a GALLON of gas left, the villain 
sees the SARGENT and gets COLE feet. So he CARYs the girl off to some BROWN 
BARNES like a PECK of potatoes. "DOUCET down while I FITCH you some RICE," 
he says. "WAITE, I'll MCTERNEN JOOST a minute." "Get thee hence, BAIN of my 
existence, I disDANE it, I've just EATON," quoth she. "Do not MADDEN me, 
PRATT," he says, taking a.PAGE for the RANSOM note. She was DOOLEY impres- 
sed, and pleaded, "Have a HARTMAN, SPEAR me, SPEAR me!" Then he HEALD 
her close, saying, "TOOHEY or don't we?" as he GABELER a HOTCHKISS. "That 
BURNS me up," says she, WARDing him off. There is a RUSSELL at the window. 
"I SAWYER PETTENGILL," cries HENRY, the hero, and he shoots the villain 
WRIGHT away. "LEE me have a LOOK at you, MAHONEY, are you STILLWELL?" 
says he. "HuRAE, come INMAN," she exclaims, "I've been enJORDAN myself. So 
off they SWINT together to SCATES on the EASTLACK. The moral is: ALL'S well

( I.ASSROOM SCENE, 1885 



Whispering was frowned upon fifty years ago too, 
but you can't really blame the young ladies . . . 
you see their graduation pictures had just arrived. 



J^/l'POXT photographs have been a source of pride and 
pleasure to fair graduates-to-be for more than fifty years . . . 
not only at Commencement but throughout the years, as they 
recall the friends and activities of the last vear at school.
